NYC Mayor de Blasio Booed and Heckled at George Floyd Memorial

On Thursday, New York Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio was met with a series of boos and jeers as he was introduced to speak at a memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn, New York.

Floyd, a 46-year-old Minnesota black man, died while being arrested by police last week.

The arrest was caught on video and went viral showing Floyd was pinned down by a white police officer’s knee to his neck.

As soon as de Blasio was introduced at the memorial the crowd erupted.

Before de Blasio took the mic, his wife Chirlane addressed the crowd saying, “No justice” and “Power to the people” while raising her fist in the air.

The mayor was met with f-bombs and crowd members turned their backs to him.

The New York Post reports:

“F— the mayor’s curfew!” some shouted. “Turn your back! Turn your back!” others shouted. Many in the crowd did turn their backs.

It’s reported de Blasio and his wife arrived 20 minutes late to the event and before they spoke, the crowd chanted “de Blasio go home!”

Calls to impeach de Blasio are gaining traction as he’s under fire over his handling of the destructive unrest on the city’s streets over the death of Floyd.

de Blasio’s failure to anticipate and swiftly put an end to the destructive unrest resulted in several days of lawless mobs wreaking havoc, from breaking out windows and looting businesses to setting police cars ablaze.

At this time, the petition collected over 120,000 signatures.

The New York Post reports:

The petition was started last year, but thousands signed onto it Tuesday as controversy raged over protests engulfing the city that have triggered clashes between participants and police officers and reports of vandalism and damage to retail stores.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted de Blasio for mishandling the looters and called for him to step down.

Giuliani also called on New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo to remove de Blasio from office.

de Blasio is getting blasted from all sides but his biggest failure by far was allowing rioters and looters to take over New York City streets.
